Can I get antivirus for my Android phone?

I’m worried about the Android security flaws. Should I get some sort of antivirus? Can you get such a thing for an Android phone?

Plenty of apps in the market. AVG, Lookout etc...
But the main risk for mobiles are not traditional viruses, but rather malicious SMS. So, don't open texts from strangers. Also, those anti-virals need to constantly run...on an underpowered phone they can be quite the drain.
